Using ChromaCam (or other) on Mac to replace a green screen with a static image?

Using ChromaCam (or other) on my Mac to replace a green screen with a static image?

I need to replace the green screen for live streaming with a Logitech C922 on a Macbook.

Does ChromaCam support this? I see other names, like Syphon, CamTwist, VirtualEyez, Veescope, Wirecast, MimoLive (formerly BoinxTV) or Visual Communicator. (ChromaCam is based on Personify, which I think is Windows only.)

I need to run this on my Mac, since Windows runs of parallels, and I see a huge time delay on the webcam that make it unacceptable.

Please let me know.

from the video's that I've seen ChromaCam has the least amount of artificing (you do have to remain relatively stationary though -- not normally a problem)

If you're doing one video + there's no movement in your video, ChromaCam may work (sometimes yes, sometimes no).

If you're producing many green screen videos on a regular basis + there's movement, start with a recording platform like ScreenFlow which provides true green screen support.

ScreenFlow tends to produce higher quality audio + video rendering than other systems I've used (Camtasia being possible the worst) + also ScreenFlow correctly uses all system threads during rendering, which tends to dramatically speed up renders. ScreenFlow can also use GPU hardware acceleration, if you have a newer Mac + ScreenFlow can figure out hardware acceleration is possible. (You'll see this option in the render tab, if ScreenFlow senses hardware it understands).

Yes, I changed my plans and decided to use YouTube to stream the video. So, my questions were no longer an issue.
